A camp space opera, in which heroic Flash Gordon had to save the world from the dastardly Emperor Ming. Along the way Flash and his partner Dale Arden (Melody Anderson) battled with Ming’s minions. Flash also had to resist the temptations of a beautiful princess.
Sam J Jones who suited the part because of his comic strip figure… played Flash Gordon but his entire dialogue was over-dubbed by another actor!
Queen provided the suitably over-the-top rock score.
